The Martha

The Martha,  she is a stunning 70s handmade chambray style cotton prairie beauty. She is not lined.

The Martha, she is so beautiful. She has a stunning novelty style floral print, amazing ruched sash tie back belt, puff cap sleeves, cotton lace detailing and a flounce to her hem. We absolutely love this girl here at Pansy, she is the epitome of our summer collection this season.

This girl measures to approx UK size 8/10, could also work on a UK 6 nicely.

Bust - 36"

Waist - 29"

Length -  56"

For reference our mannequin, Norma, measures to a UK 6. 

The Martha has been freshly laundered and is ready to wear. She can safely be washed at home on a 30 degree setting. She is in good vintage condition, she does have some wear. She has what looks to be patches of fading here and there, to be honest with her fabric being a sort of chambray denimy cotton style, this really is not too noticeable. She also has two small black marks to the side of her skirt. These are very minor and will probably fade with more washes, please see last few photos for more... This has all been reflected in her price, this dress really is a true beauty, and has clearly lived a well loved life, and she has still got plenty of life left to live.

This beauty has minimal signs of vintage wear, but please bear in mind that our pieces are true vintage, they’ve been danced in and they have been lived in, so all of our garments will carry your usual signs of vintage wear. Anything that we think is outside of what would class as usual vintage wear, we will state.

Here at Pansy we know vintage sizes are very different from modern sizes, and we pride ourselves on offering accurate measurements with approximate modern UK sizing to ensure a your Pansy purchases will be a good fit.
Although we do offer approx modern sizing it is also very helpful if you know your own measurements. If you are unsure of these, an easy way of estimating them is measuring one of your own garments, that fits well, laid flat. Measure in inches, across from pit to pit, flat across the waist and double both of these measurements.  Our length measurements are mostly taken from the highest point of the shoulder to the hem.
